State Goals

Striving for a unity of direction is characteristic of any good team, and the officer team has charted a direction for the 2015-2016 year with a set of State Chapter Goals. The goals were developed to complement the structure of the Strategic Plan categories.  In developing your own local chapter's goals for the year, please include items that will help the state chapter achieve its goals for the year.

Please assist your state chapter and let us all prove that...
